It doesn't matter if you're interested in starting a business, or if you're a long time expert.
These are just some of the things that make this industry so amazing.
1. You can take your business on the road! Want to work in Italy for a couple of weeks? Book a couple gigs for destination weddings. You can do it!
2. A full-time booth owner can work 20 hours a week and still make six figures a year.
3. You set your schedule. Want to work at 2 AM? You can book a six-hour gig that pays $1,300 by reaching out to people at 2 AM.
4. Nobody has more fun than a photo booth operator. Seeing people happy is one of the best parts of the job.
5. Only 50% of weddings currently have photo booths, which means there is space to grow like crazy.
6. You can work part-time while keeping your job! Running a photo booth business is the best way to make money on the weekends.
7. If you’re a stay at home parent, you never have to leave the house. This is the perfect business for a stay at home mom who wants to show off her business skills while spending quality time with her kids.
8. You can work on a variety of events. From corporate gigs to lavish weddings, you get to decide.
9. Let your creativity run wild. You can customize your photo booth experience to any event or theme. The more creative you are in creating an experience, the more successful you will be.
10. You can run your business as a solopreneur or scale it to as many employees as you wish! If you want total control, you have it. If you want to manage a skilled team, you can hire the best and lead them to success!

11. The start-up costs are low compared to franchises. Starting a submarine sandwich franchise can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for the license alone!
12. You can create your own brand. Tri loves pink and wanted to be the Hot Pink brand. Try changing a franchise's logo to be pink.
13. Photobooths are portable now. No more massive enclosures. What other business fits in the back of your sedan? A photobooth and a laptop and you’re all set to work anywhere. You can fit as many people as you want into the picture, too.
